Here is the FAQ that was added by the Plex Team to the announcement post :
Q: Sure, but are you going to bring X feature to app Y?
A: It's fair to assume we're shooting for feature parity, especially with big things like playlists and premium features like Extras.
Q: Why do Android Plex Pass members get the app for free, but not iOS/Windows?
A: We're working on the best way to address this inconsistency.
Q: I need to see a roadmap to know if it's worth it.
A: That's not a question. And we don't release roadmaps, but if we did, it would just be a giant neon sign saying AWESOME STUFF. With a really good bar serving microbrews and Malört underneath the sign.
Q: Why is the Lifetime price going up so much compared to the others?
A: It's rising disproportionately compared to the other plans because, frankly, at 2.5x the price of a yearly, it was priced in an unsustainable way for us. Turns out humans have a rather long lifespan.
Q: Is the subscription bound to a device or a server?
A: Generally speaking it's bound to a server (or servers, if you have more than one). There's one feature (Camera Upload) which requires a Plex Pass on the app, but we're going to be fixing that.
Q: I just subscribed, do I get a refund if I upgrade?
A: As the great Chuck Norris once said "Anything else would be less than civilized". And then he crushed a piece of carbon into a diamond. With his beard. When you upgrade, we issue a we issue a prorated refund or credit of the amount remaining on your current plan. For example, if you're half-way into a monthly subscription, we'll refund you about two bucks.
Q: Do I get all future features or not? What's with the disclaimer around premium content?
A: The reason why we always have the disclaimer is simple. Let's say in the future we added some sort of PNetflix-like service (silent P) where we streamed premium movies. There's no way we could afford that based on a Plex Pass, so we'd need to make it a separate feature with additional cost. But for example, the mega-cool Extras feature we just added involved licensing premium content, and everyone with a Plex Pass got it for free. So we're just being up front and making sure we're not limiting ourselves in the future.
